McCraken Leads Blue Grass Stakes Field

posted by NewsRadio 840 WHAS - 

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- One of the early favorites for the Kentucky Derby has one final prep race as McCraken leads the field in Saturday's $1 million Toyota Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland.

Trained by Ian Wilkes, McCraken is undefeated in four races.    He won the Sam Davis Stakes in February, but skipped the Tampa Bay Derby because of a minor ankle injury.

McCraken is the morning-line 7-5 favorite in the Blue Grass.   Second choice is the Todd Pletcher-trained colt Tapwrit.     Practical Joke is the third choice.
